Very nice tour. If I had to do it over again, I would have stayed in Belfast and explored around on my own. I'd have started out at the Titanic Museum and done a Black taxi tour and done some shopping. Giant's Causeway was neat but since I've never been to Belfast before that's my reasoning. Read Less

Beautiful area. Giant's Causeway was a zoo. Walk down and take the shuttle back. We had a nice beer in the hotel at the top. Really liked the area around the rope bridge. It is way too safe now, to be billed the way it is. Did not walk all the way down there. Went the other direction and saw a Game of Thrones spot and watched the seabirds and looked across to Islay in Scotland. Volunteers were very knowledgeable.. Belfast looked really gritty. Not impressed. Read Less

Honestly there was nothing worth seeing at Belfast. We didn't visit Titanic Museum so can't comment about that. Giant's Causeway was a huge tourist trap, people need to pay 12 euros entrance fee just to get in visitors centre for souvenirs / fast food. And there was nothing spectacular about the rocky beach. It was very crowded and just a rocky waterfront. We also went to Dark Hedges and it was OK. City murals were a joke we didn't even notice when our coach drove pass them. Read Less

Nice drive through the countryside to a photo stop at the rope bridge and coastline. Simply not enough time at the Giants Causeway and quite crowded. The guide gave us many ideas of what we could do but in reality you didn't have time to do much at all except have a look. Quite spectacular the extent of it. There is a bus to take you down and back. A lot of people walk down and take the bus back. I'd knocked my knee the day before and could hardly bend my leg so had no choice but to take the bus back. After a look at the Causeway I got in line and waited over half an hour to get a bus back. They have 2 smaller buses going up and back, not nearly enough for all the visitors. Of course the doors were shut when I was second in line and had to wait for the buses to return making me about 5-10 mins late for my tour bus. We also stopped at Dunluce Castle ruins for a photo before returning to the ship. Read Less

This day was at the top of my bucket list and it was a wonderful day. We booked a private Antrim Coast and Giants Causeway Tour with Alister at City and Causeway tours and it didn’t disappoint. The Torr road was a fun, curvy drive and the scenery was spectacular. Northern Ireland is such a lush, green beautiful place. As with all of our private tours, we were mostly able to beat the large coaches since we only had 6 people. Our goal for this trip was to go as far inland as we could with the time we had and concentrate less on the cities and that worked out well. The Giants Causeway was surreal but very crowded. We walked down to the causeway and had planned to take the shuttle back but they closed the shuttle service so that a VIP tour could use the shuttle. I felt sorry for the folks who had mobility issues and had to walk back up the hill, it was over a mile each way. We did not pay to go to the visitor’s center. Alister took 2 couples back to the ship and then drove us 1 ½ miles to TEC Belfast to see the Game of Thrones Tour Exhibition. This was an added bonus for us since we are GOT fans and it was fantastic. If you are a GOT fan and in Belfast this summer, it is worth the money. Read Less

we took a very quick bus tour through town and down to the Giants Causeway. We had ample time to see the causeway, however the back of a bus is not the best way to enjoy the scenic coastal drive back to Belfast.

I rated this tour poor because they did not deliver what they promised. We bought this through Viator but the operator was Odyssey Tours I selected this tour because the claimed to go to carrick-a-rede rope bridge and giant's causeway on a minibus which would make getting off and on easy. They showed up with a massive bus that was almost full and announced that due to the schedule we would not be going to the bridge and tried to convince us we really didn't want to go there anyway but we would see it. Seeing it was from an overlook miles away. The Giant's Causeway was great but we had many other options to get there if the bridge wasn't an option. The tour ened with a depressing drive through Belfast "Peace Wall" where we learned that they still don't like each other. Read Less

A must see in Ireland. It is incredible. A bit of walking and lots of walking on uneven surfaces if that is an issue. So worth the effort.

Belfast, Northern Ireland: We pre-arranged a ($30gbp) tour to Giant’s Causeway from irishtourtickets.com. We took the 10:30 Express tour as DW is not an early riser. Our guide Ian was prompt and we were on our way on time without a stop at the town center as our ship filled the tour with Viator bookings. There was an 8:30 tour for $35gbp which was 8 hours available as well. Ian had a lot of stories and antidotes so the ride did not seem very long. We had about 90 minutes to explore the causeway and would of like more. We also stopped at Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge, Dunluce castle, and the peace wall for a photo op. The driver’s emotion and passion could be felt as he tried to explain the conflict between the Protestants and the Catholics of years past. He promised and delivered us back to the ship 1 hour before sail-away. Read Less

We booked this excursion, Giants Causeway Tour from Belfast Port, through Viator. It was less expensive that the tour offered through Princess and you had enough time to cross the Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge (the Princess tour offered only a photo stop there). I believe it was operated by Odyssey Tours. Our guide was excellent. The Causeway was amazing to see and the tour guide was knowledgable about some of the history of Belfast. On the way back, we drove through some of the areas that are still gated and have high fences from recent history. The rope bridge was a fun excursion - we definitely got our 10,000+ steps that day!

The giant's causeway was amazing - I hadn't appreciated quite how dramatic/spectacular it would be, nor that you can clamber all over it. Plus we had amazing weather for it too.

The scenery was all so stunning that even though I'm British and Belfast is in the UK, I kept feeling like I was abroad. Read Less
